History - Designed in 1929 by architect Leland A. Bryant, the Sunset Tower (as originally called) was a trendsetter from its opening. Its dramatic setting on the Sunset Strip and elegant Art Deco styling, together with its proximity to famous restaurants and nightclubs of the 1930s & '40s, contributed to its landmark status. West Hollywood has always catered to celebrities wishing to draw attention to their star power. The Sunset Tower embodied these aspirations, counting among its former residents Howard Hughes, John Wayne, Billie Burke, Marilyn Monroe, Errol Flynn, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Paulette Goddard, Zasu Pitts, and even gangster Bugsy Siegel. Leland Bryant specialized in luxury apartments, but the Sunset Tower was his crowning achievement. His work was predominantly in Period Revival, but he proved that he was equally adept with the then-contemporary Deco style. To attract a demanding clientele, the Sunset Tower incorporated the latest in both technology and design. There were modern conveniences, like outlets in every bathroom for electric shavers, and the windows were made larger to take advantage of the spectacular views.
Highlight - Since opening in 1929, Sunset Tower Hotel has had major star power. The art deco icon was home to everyone, from Marilyn Monroe to Howard Hughes, in numerous films. Thanks to a recent face-lift to the accommodations and poolside restaurant, the hotel's old Hollywood charm has a refined, modern edge. The 81 guest rooms and suites feature panoramic windows, gourmet minibars, and signature toiletries. Bugsy Siegel's old apartment has been transformed into the walnut-paneled Tower Bar, where famed jazz pianists regularly perform, overseen by maître d' Ms. Gabe Doppelt. Sunset Plaza's boutiques and outdoor cafés are nearby.
